    Melburnia

    Here’s my first cold seedling! Its leaves look healthier than it’s parents. I took this a few weeks ago after lifting off the netted greenhouse for a closer look. It’s exciting because its my first but realistically its not likely to be anything special, probably very similar to the parents whose flowers look so similar anyway. Or maybe just a dull, limp white?

    Still, it’s my first so can’t help but be a little excited. Probably boring for everyone else though!

    Hi Melburnia, thx for sharing pictures. Sanguinea: beautiful yellow variety. If this one was grown from seed labeled as red sanguinea, this can happen, colors do not come true from seed. Anyway, yell0w is beautiful. Cross with the second cold one is possible and a seed-pod may grow. The seedling you have grown is very healthy and looks fine, I can really understand how excited you are about raising coldies, just enjoy to do this.

    There does seems to be a pod forming. Plant is in shade protected by fence and garage. Can’t protect it against those hot northerly winds or high ambient temps, though. Fingers crossed!

    hi there Melburnia, im also from that’s state but down the other side of Apollo Bay , where it seems that the cold group really love it here

    i have been growing Brugmansia for more then 30 years and have started to move in to the cold group

    i have a large collection of both warm and cold groups but no named varieties as yet. if you are looking to increase tour seed hull let me know and i can also assist

    looks like you have a few interesting plants at this time

    i also see that you have a plant that could have a pod on it, did you self pollinate it??

    i know of the yellow sanguinea’s one down the road is full of pods all aborted and not a single seed in over 100 seed pods which i checked out

    i hope that you do get some seed from those pods and see what comes from them

    i have B.’Midas’ and the original plant was from a nursery back in 2005 the plant produced seed pods and viable seed on that for many years, the seed were then dispersed worldwide back in 2014-18

    good luck

    Hi there, I’m in the outer west of Melbourne. Dryer and sunnier than the east, frostier winters too. The angels out in the open get frostbitten. It really sets them back.

    Your Midas has a longer and narrower shape than my yellow one, better defined I think.I did have a pod on the sanguinea, which I’d pollinated with pollen from the cold angel. so exciting! Until yesterday, when i saw that it had fallen off. Only a bit of the stem is left, can’t find the tiny pod on the ground.

    The only plant I really really REALLY wanted was an arborea. I got some seeds from teh seedbank and some germinated. But, again, the labels got mixed up and I now don’t know which are the arboreas (if any survived), which the cold angels from my own pod, and which the warm angel seeds from the seedbank.

    Amazing how I haven’t been able to keep the labels attached to these seeds/plants. One mishap after another!
